Giving your home a facelift does not have to be tedious or expensive if you are willing to dedicate some time for it, and channel your creativity into it.
A fresh coat of paint here, a little rearrangement there, a thrifty purchase, and you are well on your way to re-experiencing the beauty of your living space.
Display fresh flowers/plants
Plants are a sign of life and health. Bring that energy into your home by getting plant boxes for your porch and windows. Flowers also do well on the coffee table, or a shelf, among other elegant pieces.
Change your throw pillows
You have no idea how much change a different set of throw pillows can make on the same piece of furniture! Purchase new ones or refurbish the old ones by changing the outer covering, adding embroidery decorations, or doing both.
Declutter your home
Taking the time to sort through your possessions and removes the junks you have accumulated over the years can make a huge difference between a choked up feel and a decluttered, airy feel. Take each room one day at a time and by the end of the week, your home will feel as good as new.
Get busy with the paintbrush
You can save costs by taking on the repainting project by yourself rather than contracting it to interior decorators. You can save even more by focusing on one wall in each room and creating a beautiful accent out of them, or by concentrating on your favorite/most frequently visited rooms.
Move around furniture pieces and decorations to create a new layout
Many people are influenced to move houses even when it is not financially convenient because their current houses have lost their appeal. Bring back the allure of your space by playing around with your living room layout.
Change the position of the sofa and the shelf, throw in a beanbag, and you get a different-looking living room. The same can be done in the bedroom.
Change up your bedding
Make bedtime a little more special for your kids and you by updating your bedding. Beautiful, new bedcovers with compelling textures can instantly change the appearance of a room. This is only natural as the bed is the most important piece in the room and it draws the attention anyway.
This is a precious hack for those who don’t have too much money to splurge on revamping a room.
Accessorize your walls
You can do this by mounting a floating shelf holding decorative pieces, or by hanging up beautiful family portraits and art pieces. New wall lighting and elegant wall clocks also do well in adding more activity and liveliness on an otherwise boring wall.
Invest in cleaning agents
One day of concerted activity with baking soda, vinegar, turpentine, bleach, and other cleaning agents can take a house from dull to fab. Dull looking sinks and fixtures, dirty wall tiles, and work surfaces more often than not require thorough shining instead of outright replacement.
Nothing compares to the sparkle of a space that has just enjoyed good cleaning. It feels as good as new.
